How Betsy DeVos Has Influenced Education Policy’s Future https://nyti.ms/3ooER2j
Excerpt from article about Devos’ campaign to defund public schools and privatize education:
“Through her attention-attracting assault on the public education system, Betsy DeVos has actually given the next secretary of education an opportunity — to recommit to public education as a public good, and a cornerstone of our democracy.”
An article everyone should read. I am in this situation asbi am sure many of you are – teaching adjunct, squirreling together an income. I often feel like dropping out of the work force. What’s the point? Read on:
“Henry David Thoreau is as relevant as ever when he writes, “We seem to have forgotten that the expression ‘a liberal education’ originally meant among the Romans one worthy of free men; while the learning of trades and professions by which to get your livelihood merely, was considered worthy of slaves only.”

Pros and cons about the Clery law. I work at a college and above all students must feel safe before learning can happen. It is about time that universities, of all types private and public – 2 year or 4 year, are transparent on reporting incidences of rape and drugs or other crimes. Parents and students should be alerted to possible dangers on campus.
A lot of my students over the years have felt safe based on ignorance of the nature of crimes perpetrated on campuses. They learn but many experience date rape or other compromising situations.
These are fresh, curious young people and they are our future. Don’t they deserve better from institutions or higher learning and academia in general?
